I chose nursing specifically because I love the idea of taking care of people, and nurses make a huge difference and have such an impact on the patients and their loved ones lives. In my junior year, I went to Butler hospital to shadow one of the nurses that worked there. During her shift, she was always busy and working hard in order to take care of all her patients. The thought of working hard
While working full- time as a technician, I attended college and quickly took all the needed courses to apply into a nursing program. I was attending college and had a full time job. Having both challenged and excited me, since I was one step closer to having my career; just as I promised my grandmother. I finally got accepted into nursing school, graduated, and became a Registered Nurse. Every single patient I cared for, I used my past experience with my family, and used that as my foundation for my bedside manner.
Throughout the last three years, I have worked with the elderly in a nursing home called Aase Haugen as a certified nursing assistant. Since then, I have gained a tremendous amount of respect for registered nurses. Their leadership, passion, and commitment has inspired me to provide great health care to patients now and in my future career as a nurse. I am currently a freshman that has been accepted into the nursing program at Luther College. I think I would be a good candidate for this scholarship, because I put a tremendous amount of heart into my job and truly enjoying helping and assisting the elderly.
I should be considered for the Kaiser Permanente Health Care Scholarship because I have proved and accomplished more than what I thought I would be capable of in my education, I am passionate for the health industry, and I financially need to be to succeed. I will continue my education by pursuing my goal to become a Registered Nurse. I first considered Registered Nursing when I joined the Health Academy and realized how passionate I was to help others. Throughout my years in the Health Academy, my passion grew drastically. My summer of 2015 was dedicated to two internships; one being a Medical Assistant (200 hours) and another as a Physical Therapy Aide (80 hours).
Every moment is a memorable part of the journey of life. I have always appreciated the value of giving to others because I believe that just being able to lend a hand to others, no matter how trivial it may be, is what makes life worth living. However, my desire to help people started when I began working with children as a teacher’s assistant. It would instill in me a lesson that I would never forget. As my first step at trying something different, in the beginning I was tense, unsure of what to do.
What makes you capable of being a nurse? I am capable of being a nurse because I have been a Certified Nurse Assistant for over ten years; I give not only the book knowledge, but a piece of my heart to each and every patient I care, always on the top of my game and make sure that my patients are clearly understood by everyone else C.N.A is very stressful job where traumatic situations are common. The ability to accept suffering and death without letting it get personal is crucial I gain all those experience by working over ten years as nurse assistant some days can seem like nonstop gloom and doom. I feel gratified going out into the world and serving others. Nursing is about universal care, getting to know your patients, and gaining their
When I contemplate why I want to pursue a career in the medical field, I picture my high school allied health class where my enthusiasm for the field first started and I became a Certified Nursing Assistant. I have been around hospitals and doctor’s growing up, but that class opened my eyes to a new world. To learn extensive amounts about the healthcare field and have the opportunity to gain clinical experience has no comparison, to be able to learn hands on at that age, and know that I wanted to care for patients. To see all those elderly residents, to experience helping them and showing them compassion, it made my day, every day I was there. The fact that I can do two things I love, learning new things and helping people get better excites
Although, I thoroughly enjoy working for Children’s Homecare especially the families I work for, I cannot advance my career without further education. In the last few years, I have found it difficult to work more hours, take care of my family and go to school. My husband works hard to provide for our family, nonetheless, in today’s world you need both parents working to financially make ends meet. I am scheduled to graduate May of 2018 from Stark State College with an associate’s degree in nursing. I plan to continue my education and work on my bachelor degree in nursing, while working as an RN.
I believe I have always pursued for what is best for me and I continue to do so. Dedicated is what I like to describe myself as, whether it is in school or at work. I will always accomplish more than I can, without the help of others. It gives me value for being an independent person, which I believe makes me stand out from other candidates. Not only that, I enjoy managing to do certain task and duties on my own, because I enjoy the after feeling of success and the opportunity to help others after.
My grandmother was the nurse that inspired me to pursue the profession. I am so thankful that she is still here to witness me getting closer to that goal. I’ve always wanted to fulfill her foot steeps and make her proud. I am the first one in my family to attend college, and I am very proud of myself for this accomplishment, but it has been a very tough road getting to this place. As most of my family is working class that did not attend college I was expected to get a job right after high school.
